Kirkcowan – What's Going On?

DG Support – Community Bulletin – Ed 17

Welcome to Edition 17 of Community.

Today is the second day on Volunteers’ Week, and in both of our editions this week, and across our social media channels, we are thanking volunteers for their great community spirit as well as recognising
their effort and dedication throughout the year. So, thank you to each and everyone of you.

Today, is also the second day of our Restart programme where we have reopened ten of our twelve household waste recycling centres. For this week – all sites will be open seven days, and thereafter will have revised opening hours. In addition, our bulky and white goods uplift service has also restarted – and you can make a booking at 030 33 33 3000.

Our Restart programme coincides with the Scottish Government’s phase 1 of the transition out of lockdown, which includes people from two different households in Scotland can now meet up, but meetings can only take place outdoors and people much keep 2 metres apart.

We will see garden centres reopening, and site preparation can begin in the construction industry – and there will also be the opportunity to place some sport.

Although the move to phase 1 and restart is welcomed, we ask you to, please, continue to stay safe
